The Taifa of Niebla was an Arab[1] taifa kingdom that existed during three distinct time periods: from 1023 to 1053, from 1145 to 1150 and from 1234 to 1262.

From 1053 until 1091 it was under the forcible control of Taifa of Seville, by Abbad II al-Mu'tadid.[2] It was finally conquered by the Crown of Castile. In 1262 it was eventually absorbed by Castile.
